Encourage a discussion and dialogue: Ask the children what do they know about penguins. Proceed to discuss some basic facts for young children:
- The penguin is a large water bird with webbed feet that lives in colder regions of the Southern Hemisphere (show in a map or globe).
- Penguins have short feathers that grow close together to keep their bodies warm, and only birds have feathers.
- Penguins spend most of their lives in water.
- They can't fly and instead of wings they have flippers that help them dive and swim fast underwater.
